This nonsense has got to stop.
A four door saloon is not a coupe. Even with a slammed roof line.
It is precisely this slicing and further dicing of car categories that's putting me off modern cars. They're increasing contrived by marketeers over engineers, designed to fill some hokey-pokey lifestyle niche-within-a-niche that exists only in the phoney minds of their creators.
Here, BMW presents a 'coupe'. That's right, a four door, three-box saloon, is now - in modern BMW parlance - a 'coupe'.

Next; the fixed head convertible, the mono-box 'traditional three-box saloon', the booted hatchback, the four-door 'two door'...
BMW - are you blind? What on earth is 'coupe' about a three box, four door saloon?
Did BMW learn nothing about the 5er GT? A saloon that's not quite a saloon, nor the faux X6 it aped while being nothing like as useful as the 5er it's based on. This car (I believe) was pulled from the US market recently due to the market sensing a crock when they saw one.
I have no problem with this 6er - it looks ok - but I resent the abuse of categorisation for cheap market titillation.
